Since his arrival at Bayern Munich, Julian Nagelsmann has done everything possible to keep Benjamin Pavard in his squad. The French defender played the first seven matches as starter, drawing two encounters and winning the remaining five.
However, his performances declined noticeably and the coach does not have faith in him. For that reason, the German side were thinking of renewing his contract, which expires in 2024, but they have changed their mind.
As a result, Atletico Madrid are targeting him, according to 'Sky Sport'. Diego Simeone is still interested in finding Nahuel Molina's replacement and he thinks that Pavard could be the best option. He could arrive in the next transfer window in January or the following summer.
Florian Plettenberg, who is a journalist that reports on the day-to-day life of Bayern, said on social media that Pavard was the first to arrive at the last training session and he did not make eye contact with the coaching staff.
For the moment, the France player wants to be in the final squad for the World Cup but his situation at Bayern seems irreversible.
